Track Name: Brand New Bag
My baby has got a brand new bag
You notice when she starts to drag
She loves me, but she hates me too
She says that I’m a lot like you.
A lot like you…

Hey.. Do you want me? Do you miss me? Would you kiss me?
Are we lovers like no others? Or just playing under covers?
When you touch me I go crazy. When you’re sleeping you look amazing.
Are you coming back tomorrow? For your love I’d beg, steal or borrow.

My baby has got a brand new bag
You notice when she starts to drag
She loves me, but she hates me too
She says that I’m a lot like you.
A lot like you…
Track Name: Crazy Girl
Another weekend staying out all night
We’re in the kitchen and what an awful fight
I don’t know why I keep on doing what you say
Momma says it’s just the dues I’m gonna pay for two
Crazy girl like you

You take me dancing then you leave me on the floor
Spend all my money as you walk right out the door
You got my cigarettes and all my credit cards
You think it’s funny when I wake up in the yard…you do
Crazy girl like you

Another weekend and you throw up on my lawn
I look to you but you’re gone…gone gone gone away

So go on leave me now just walk right out the door
It’s nothing new to me I’ve seen it all before
Take my pickup truck Lord take my trailer too
Poppa says it’s just the dues I’m gonna pay for two
Crazy girl like you

Another weekend and you throw up on my lawn
I look to you but you’re gone…gone gone gone away
Track Name: Last Call
What went wrong with your Rock-n-Roll? Did it wear you down? Take a toll?
The neon girls and the alcohol. Out all night… your last call.

Yeah she’s the prettiest girl in town, but she always runs you down, late at night when you’re not around.
And she’s got the tattooed ankle, she’s got the tattooed ass, she’s always laughing, Lord I think she’s on the grass.

But what went wrong with your Rock-n-Roll? Did she take your heart? Did you lose control?
‘Cause I remember those nights, with you under the lights, you tore our hearts out and you laughed with delight.
With your sweat running down, cigarette butts on the ground, you were magic when you moved to the sound.

Now you just hide yourself away, with nothing new to say, you leave us hanging with these whiskey clichés.
And that’s the worst way to be, everyday it’s all we see, while we’re swimming ‘round in mediocrity.
But I remember those nights, with you under the lights, yeah you were smiling you can’t deny you had it right.
Crazy dancing all around, the chaos coming down, yeah you were magic when we moved to the sound.
So what went wrong with your Rock-n-Roll? Did it tear you down? Take a toll?
Track Name: Mehaffey Bridge
Come on Annie, I’ve been thinking
We should find some time
I don’t know but I would say
It’s not a waste of time

That’s what gets me, that’s what gets me
That’s what gets me down to Two Bells Road

Come on Johnny, meet me halfway
Down to Mehaffey Bridge
We’ll go jumpin’ and we’ll go swimming
I’ve got lots to give I won’t deny
I want to see you in the sun

Come on sister, I won’t see you
When you’re lying there
I don’t think so
But I won’t say no
I don’t really care
I see it coming out tonight
The sun goes down

So come on Annie, meet me halfway
down to Mehaffey Bridge
We’ll go jumping and we’ll go swimming
I’ve got lots to give I won’t deny
I want to see you in the sun…
Track Name: Sometimes
Is it all that you wanted, is it all that you deserve?
You’re not newly broken hearted, funny how it still hurts
I’d like to see you…if you come back around
I’d like to see you…show yourself in town
I’d like to see you….sometime…sometime

Do you go back to those pastures, where you first gave it away?
Do you paint your disappointment, are you gonna make it pay?
I’d like to see you…if you come back around
I’d like to see you…show your stuff in town
I’d like to see you…sometime….sometime

I don’t know what you’re thinking, I don’t know where you go
It’s not my fault, it’s not my problem, but I wanted you to know
I still miss you….sometimes….sometimes
I’d like to see you…sometime….sometime
Track Name: Someone Cries
It’s gonna be a long cold winter
Feel it on the wind tonight
The leaves are on the ground down near the gutter
The skies are gray, everything has died
I never went out looking for your affection
It’s all fun and games ‘til someone cries

I must have looked like I needed some protection
My clothes all dirty ragged and tired
But I was on my feet I had some direction
Had enough to eat, yeah I was doing fine
I never went out lookin for your attention
It’s all fun and games ‘till someone cries…
Track Name: Forsaken
Lord please do forgive me for these sins that I’ve committed and the shit forsaken soul that I’ve become. Don’t know how it happened, took a wrong turn down near Memphis, now my liver’s boxed and I’m feeling overcome.
And I can’t take confession anymore. And I can’t find my way back to your door.

Lord please do forgive me for those sins that I forgotten and these ill-begotten party favor gains. Don’t know where it happened, hopped the wrong rail down near Georgia, now the train I’m on takes your name in vain.
Yeah and I can’t take communion anymore. Yeah and I can’t find my way back to your door.

Lord please do forgive me for I’ve coveted another, now I’m wrapped in my own blanket of disdain. Don’t know how it happened, the neighbor she came calling, now we’re lying here and we can’t clean up the stain.

Yeah and mama would be so proud, and grandma’s wrapped in shrouds of shame.
Yeah but mamas are always proud, and grandma’s not impressed by hollow fame.

So Lord please do forgive me for these sins that I’ve committed and the shit forsaken soul that I’ve become.

I never thought I’d need you.
Never could believe you.
Never thought I’d crawl back to your door…
Track Name: Quiet Tonight
i don’t like my website
cause it’s like my love life
so out of date
and the content’s not right

but i still write letters
that i’ll never send
now i prefer email
when i’m smitten again

we fall down
slide on down
get those memories out of sight
and it’s quiet
so quiet tonight

darling i’ve fallen
right out of love
i know you weren’t looking
so sorry to shove

the smell on the pillow
when i turn out the light
tells me it’s over
but won’t tell me it’s right

we fall down
slide on down
keep those memories out of sight
and it’s quiet
so quiet tonight

just cause something’s older
don’t make it better
your masters degree
has been wearing on me

i don’t like my website
cause it’s like my love life
so out of date
and the content’s not right…
Track Name: Grandma's Rosary
I want to see my grandma’s rosary
All day in hot sun with more work that’s never done

And if I take her to Union Hill
She could walk up and pay her bill
She might come in a little lean
But those eyes would still be green

I want to see my grandma’s wounded knees
Every day bar none, more working that’s never done

And if I take her to Union Hill
She could walk up and pay her bill
She might come in a little lean
But those eyes would still be green
Yeah those eyes would still be green

I want to see my grandma’s rosary…
Track Name: Sleep Now Angel
Sleep now angel, darling don’t you cry
Mama’s coming, dry your weary eyes
Sing with papa, hold my hand so tight
Sleep now angel drift into the night

Sleep….
Sleep…
Sleep….

Sleep now angel, darling don’t you cry
